Road of life. The True Story of the Lend-Lease. Part 1

Road of life (01.30, 09.30, 17.30)

On June 22, 1941, German forces attacked the Soviet Union. Hitler made Leningrad, as St. Petersburg was known at the time, one of his main strategic objectives. There have been many difficult and controversial moments in the history of St. Petersburg, but the 900 days' blockade during World War II, when the city and its inhabitants faced the possibility of utter extermination, was probably the most terrible time. The only way in and out of the besieged city was across a frozen lake. A narrow path in the ice became the road of life. What is left to remind us of those events and how memory lives on? Find out in the Road of Life.

The True Story of the Lend-Lease (05.30, 13.30, 21.30)

The history of the Lend-Lease did not start with the first bombardments of the Nazi Army on the Soviet-German border, and not even with the fight for Britain. The reasons why the would-be anti-Hitler alliance was created are rooted in the pre-war history of Europe. Paul Tadich investigates the roots of the Lend-Lease in the first installment of The True Story of the Lend-Lease series.
